FYI, when I try to build R-2.13.0 with the old SlackBuild. I found some bugs:

  1, --with-perl option is no longer needed.
  2, the old SlackBuild didn't set the CXXFLAGS, FCFLAGS, FFLAGS and
OBJCFLAGS. I doubt whether R actually use obj-c but configure report
it. And it's no harm to set it.
  3, "export" is needed in the "adjust PATH" line.

With these changes applied, R seems build and run well on my system. I
did a demo(graphics) and it went well.
